.us domains

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

No, not right now. Private registration, also known as WHOIS privacy and domain privacy protection, is not available for .us domains because the conditions set by the registry do not allow for proxy registrations. This means your name or business entity will be searchable in the WHOIS database.

The .us domain extension, the official domain extension for the United States, was established in 1985 and was the internet's first country-specific TLD. Currently, the registry services provider Neustar is the administrator of the .us domain and manages it on behalf of the US Department of Commerce. They take care of the marketing and technical aspects of the TLD. This domain extension is perfect for those looking to grow their brand domestically in the United States, as it demonstrates that your business or organization is local — to both consumers and search engines. It's therefore a popular option for all kinds of websites, from simple blogs to large corporate sites and everything in between.

Securing your very own .us domain with IONOS couldn't be easier. To get started, you will first need to make sure the domain name you want is available. You can do this by simply entering your desired name into the search bar at the top of the page. If the domain name you selected isn't available, you will be provided with several similar alternatives. For example, you might get a recommended synonym or slight variation in your chosen name. Once you've selected a domain name, it's then simply a matter of following our simple registration instructions.

Unlike some other country-specific TLDs, the .us domain has rules determining who is allowed to register, known as the NEXUS requirements. The easiest way to meet the requirements is to be a United States citizen or resident, or a US-based organization or business. However, foreign businesses can also register a .us domain provided they can prove they have a bona fide presence in the United States. In practice, this may include having active office space and conducting regular commercial or non-commercial activities in the country.
